GISD zoned our school boundaries to optimize student capacity at our facilities while accommodating for our district’s student growth. Recognizing that GISD is a fast growth district, our intent is to develop boundaries that will allow us to rezone in a manner that has the least impact on students.
- Create attendance zones that utilize the student capacity of existing and new facilities.
- Create vertical feeder patterns for all campuses across the district.
- Minimize the impact on students and families.
